I'm not an idiot and am aware of that*, however, I thought that Disney chose a period aesthetic for the France pavilion. I haven't noticed any modern skyscrapers represented in the pavilion.In actual Paris, hundred year old buildings stand right next to modern skyscrapers. As they do in many old cities.
Note: I live in a 130 year old building that stands a few doors down from a new luxury condo. What was most surprising was when my contractor showed me the gas pipes for the lighting before he ripped them out. The building's old coal chute is also fairly quaint.
* Don't worry, I'm not offended or anything.
